Arrival Story:
Six months after we had to put down our 15 year old Husky, Sasha, we started looking for another dog. I responded to an ad for really cute puppies in the local Craigslist. They had 2 females left when we went to look at them. My wife had to have the one with 1 blue and 1 brown eye.

The owners mentioned several breeds that they were including Husky, Bulldog, Australian Shepard but did not have either parent. Based on the eye colors and face markings we believed she was a Husky mix. As she got older her interesting coat, small head and body size made us and many other people wonder what her mix was. My wife and I jokingly thought that she was part dingo. When she was almost 8 months old I met someone that said she looked like a Kelpie. I googled Kelpies and now I'm certain that she is either a Kelpie or Kelpie mix. Interestingly it is believed that dingos were introduced in their make-up by breeders of the Kelpie.
